Dear Church Family,
“How great are His signs, how powerful His wonders! His kingdom lasts forever, His rule through all generations.” – Daniel 4:3
On the day before the people of Israel crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land, Joshua told them, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.” Joshua 3:5.
I doubt if Joshua knew many details in advance of what God would do. But he knew what God had already done and he trusted the heart of God. The very next day God would dry up the Jordan River to let them walk safely across. Then the Lord would subdue their enemies and give them the land He meant for them to enjoy.
The Lord has things in mind for us too, as individuals and as a church family. He plans to work in us and through us to accomplish His purpose as we cooperate with Him. There are things only He can do; and He wants us to ask Him and wait on Him to do them. If that includes miracles, great! But it definitely includes transformation in our lives and the lives of others.
This summer we sent eleven teens to camp, and I believe God spoke into their lives to call them to a higher destiny and an enduring influence with others. In a few weeks we’ll host hopefully over 100 kids for vacation Bible school. And, again, we pray and believe that God will accomplish lasting things in many lives.
The impact of this summer’s ministry is sure to last into eternity! What a privilege to be part of it as we invest our own lives into the ongoing Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for praying for God’s greatest will to come forth and thank you for giving your time and resources as we partner with Him in His work.
